Murals tend to be majestic. Majesty comes with large size. But Joey Nix brings majesty with his thoughtful realistic portraits and more. On his artist website find a catalog of his enormous and varied works.
From his website:
Joe Nix is a Seattle-based painter and muralist. With a career spanning over 15 years, Nix is one of Seattle’s most prolific muralists. Using exterior walls for the majority of his career, Nix is not shy of large surfaces. His work graces walls as large as ninety feet, as well as small pieces both equally detailed and iconic. Using inspirations from childhood and his familiar upbringing around boats, Nix’s materials are just as important as his subjects. Joey has a passion for painting naturally inspired works of art in places that clients are seeking to enliven.
“Beginning with a general concept of using portraiture, I gravitated towards creating a collection of the many people surrounding me in my everyday life. Celebrating the uniqueness of each individual and instantly capturing them in their natural state.”
– Joe Nix
